but not stellar. in half the descriptions, the applicant was named john, the other half, jennifer. on a scale of 1 to 7, with 7 being highest, professors gave john an average score of 4 for competence but gave jenifer a 3.3. john was also seen more favorably as someone they might hire and offer a higher salary. the study found female professors to be just as biased against women. >> so after 20-30 years of pushing to get to advance women and women making advancements in college education, in even doctors biology, chemistry, education. you're still seeing this bias in the sciences. are we ever going to overcome it? >> interestingly enough it turns out at yale, they have some of the higher numbers for women in the stem program. 39-46% of their women or of their students in that program are female and i think last year they had around 40 something percent graduation rate where the national average is 38%. what bothers or concerns me with this is some of this is still unfortunately, biased and prejudices. both from men and women. and that's really human nature and how do we get beyond that? because i

, georgia congressman and civil rights icon john lewis compared some voter i.d. statutes to literacy tests and poll taxes that kept blacks from voting for years in the south. >> i've seen this before. i lived this before. too many people struggled, suffered, and died to make this possible for every american to exercise their right to vote.

president john f. kennedy sent in the national guard to restore order. so 50 years long, how have things changed in america? >> i came back to mississippi in 1960 to launch a war against white supremacy with the intent of destroying it. the color line didn't enter the picture. only citizenship. and the rights and privileges there are and the reality of enjoying them or not enjoying them. and that's the reason why i looked the way i did because i knew the other side of fear that if someone was in the situation where they were afraid and showed no fear it would scare the life out of the other side and i know it was for rear because they were shaking like a leaf on a tree. my job was finished. once i put the president of the united states in the position where he had to use the military might of the united states of america to protect my rights as a citizen, everything else was somebody else's job. i was not a human being. i was a soldier. and soldiers when they go to war, what soldiers do is kill enemies. of course a soldier must at all times be ready to die for his country and his cause.
the debates, but george w. bush exceeded his expectations and did fine. four years later, john kerry at least in some of the eyes probably was a better debater but didn't necessarily matter. chuck is right, it is difficult to reset it. but there are a lot of voters who are completely fine with a new president, i think, even some people who voted for president obama. i was talking to a voter a week ago in wisconsin and said he voted for obama four years ago and not sure at all. he is open to voting for governor romney if he knew what he stood for. that is governor romney's charge here to put some meat on the bones of what he stands for on his policies. and people are open to that. >> jim, imagine yourself as a debate moderator this week and put on your mask and go with it. what kind of questions would you like to see these candidates address that will actually speak to the concerns you hear voters have about the future of this country? >> there is one question and i don't want to tell jim what to do but ask it different ways, and that is how in the world what you are proposing enough to get th
in the fuse. >> reporter: ministry volunteer john franklin practices what he preaches. whether he's employd, as he was at the time of this july taping, running training sessions for the state department or unemployed as he was soon after, he is always looking for a job. >> because that's the nature of the job market today. if you get laid off today from a position, it could take you anywhere from nine months to two years to find another job. those lay-offs can come at any time. your phone could ring and someone could say, "we're very sorry. please pack up your things." someone will walk you out the door. i've gone through that. 0 minutes later i was out on the streets just like you see in the movies. reer>> rtpo: you would thinkrt that with help wanted ads moving from print to the internet job searching would be easier these days but no says john franklin. it's making things harder. >> lot of people come in here with all the on-line ads, they've put dates on them and notes. they haven't heard anything back. i honestly think if you're going to be spending the bulk of your time at home doing
. >> there were countless trips in and out of johns hopkins. while i'm taking care of him i'm also still taking my mom to and from her doctors' appointments. in the meantime, in many respects it net like dad just wasn't getting better but i couldn't admit it. >> ear all in here. sreenivasan: today georgia's care is paid for by both medicaid and medicare. matthew's medicaid application ipending but both of them had to spend just about everything they saved to be poor enough to qualify for medicaid. after paying for prescriptions and other medical expenses each month they keep just $74 of the check they get from social security and veterans and retirement benefits. the rest goes to the nursing home. >> i had to dump all my stock. i had to dump my life insurance policy, her life insurance policy had to be dumped. they kept money out which we could to arrange for our funeral. a gravesite. the rest of the money we turned over -- i'm not complaining that's the way the game is. but now we're totally dependent on medicaid. >> sreenivasan: their story is all too familiar, according to matt. >> anyone of us
the enthusiasm of these obama volunteers, national surveys of young voters show a more complex picture. john della volpe is director of polling for harvard's institute of politics. >> it's almost night and day judy. you know whereas young people four years ago were among the most enthusiastic members of the electorate. we see major dissatisfaction with the process, with the campaign and far less political engagement than we've seen four years before. >> woodruff: hoping to capitalize on that dissatisfaction, mitt romney's campaign is using new targeted smart phone applications in an effort to pull young voters toward their candidate. 21-year-old o.s.u. senior niraj antani says it's working. >> i've had people come up to me who joined college republicans who say, "listen you know i fell into the hope and change trick in 2008 and we've seen his record and we want jobs when we graduate from college and so you know we are considering voting for governor romney." >> woodruff: at last weekend's game, young fans of ohio state university's beloved buckeyes had football, not politics, on their minds.
the concept of the european union in the late 40s and 50s, john monet. >> rose: a frenchman. >> said that the integration of europe will grow through crisis. and he was very right. also in that respect. because you see, when we have a serious crisis like undoubtedly the euro zone crise has been, you either accept the distraction-- this integrate ofigration, in the case of europe-- or you cope with the need to put things straight after they risk falling apart. and what is needed to have more cohesion. what is needed is each individual country and their political systems is ready to give up a bit of national sovereignty and to share that sovereignty with others-- that is, putting together a more integrated europe to be very concrete, big cause of the crisis was, of course, that some countries were running disorderly budget deficits. now, it has been-- and this has been also the root of the greek crisis, for example-- now, to cope with this, it has been decided that each and every government now has to submit it's craft budget for the following year, not to its domestic parliament first
